The quality of the performances by the Walla Walla Symphony is in large part a testament to the skills and musical abilities of our great musicians. We’re fortunate to have as orchestra members local and regional semi-professional and professional musicians with a few highly competent amateurs. If you’re interested in playing with the Walla Walla Symphony, either as an orchestra member or guest artist, please contact Sharon Thompson, General Manager, at 509.529.8020.
Some of the musicians who play with the symphony are also willing to play for your special occasions such as weddings, parties, and so on. If you’re interested in finding a musician for your special occasion, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 509.529.8020.
